Jimmy Graham's absence from minicamp felt, but not disastrous

On Black and Gold Today from New Orleans Saints minicamp, sports reporter Rachel Whittaker and Fox 8 Saints reporter Sean Fazende wrap up the week with offensive insight.

Tight end Jimmy Graham was not present during the three days of practice as he and the Saints prepare for a grievance hearing starting June 17 regarding whether Graham should be valued as a tight end or wide receiver under the franchise tag rules. However, is Graham's absence a big deal at this point?

Also, Nick Toon is battling for a wide receiver spot with the Saints. With only four catches in two seasons, this summer is critical for Toon. What skills has he shown to make his case alongside other proven Saints receivers?

The Saints have their last OTAs next week and then break before training camp begins in West Virginia on July 24.
